Social Security has issued its Annual Statistical Supplement for 2013. This is crammed with all the statistical information about Social Security benefits you could ask for. Unfortunately, it contains only limited information about the operations of the Social Security Administration itself. Want to know how many people are drawing U.S. Social Security disability benefits and living in the nation of Lebanon? It's 27. Want to know what percentage of appeals are approved by Social Security's Administrative Law Judges? You won't find it in the Annual Statistical Supplement. Which piece of information is of more interest?
